Mr Scraper who is eleven foot tall if he’s an inch was picked up by marine radar as he walked along a high street. The star who has previously interrupted satellite television broadcasts and financed his university education by taking a job as a mobile phone mast was immediately taken into custody by local police. On hearing the news the government of Papua New Guinea, where Mr Scraper is worshiped as a deity, have threatened to invade Russia if he is not released immediately.
